Vance Hines Shortshots Staggered Exhaust For Harley Sportster 2014-2015
When I put these pipes on my 2014 Harley 48 I instantly fell in love. Even more so when I started it up!

Sound and Performance
Love the pipes. The visual aesthetic is gorgeous and man these pipes can talk. Also gave a nice performance boost without even remapping the fuel system.

Must have for Iron 883
Like many already have said...after doing the research and reading multiple comments/reviews/recs, I went with the Shortshots, the Naked Air Intake, and the Fuel Pak.
First off the stuff was delivered so fast I couldn't believe it. Two days - super impressed with that part.
The change is almost comparable to purchasing a new ride altogether. The look is exactly what the Iron deserves and not overstated but appropriate. The change in sound is dramatic - yes much louder - for me (maybe I'm already deaf) the earplug thing is a bit overstated. Will the neighbors here me? For sure...but they could already...so I'm happy for them that it sounds even more "Harley-esque".
Deeper thunder growl. Very nice.
I put on the Naked Air Intake also - but prior to mounting it I cut the shipping plastic carefully to only expose the center metal - primed it and sprayed it flat black. You could paint it whatever color you wanted - and the packaging makes it simple actually. Very easy to do.
Fuel Pak. I did it just because of so many reviews - I didn't even test ride it prior to the mapping. SO SO Simple. First ride out after...no backfiring...nothing but pure awesomeness. So back in the box the Fuel Pak goes until I need it again. Maybe I'll venture into the "auto-tune" at some point, but it did exactly what it's advertised to so I'm happy.
Overall - it's not too bad of an install. Some bolts are tricky - I had tools everywhere - if you take your time and you're moderately handy with stuff like this it's not bad. A 95 degrees in Texas install adds the fun of sweating all over everything too.
Big thumbs up to Vance & Hines - stuff comes very nicely packaged and protected. Products are so well made and roadworthy. The instructions are mediocre - passable and in most cases if you take your time you can tell what they are saying. The Naked Air instructions were worse than the pipes but it can only go on one way so..
Buy with confidence - your bike will be forever changed - and you will get the Harley sound and edgier look.

Great sound. Great looks. Great price.
Got them out of the box and installed quick and easy. Started up the bike and the sound was night and day. I was extremely satisfied. Vance and Hines makes a great product that is made in the USA which is a bonus.

These pipes are stellar. BE CAREFUL when unscrewing your oxygen sensors! I was, and still managed to damage its wiring. Fuel pack is telling me it's running lean because the sensor got damaged. Also, install your quiet baffles before the short shots. It'll save you a lot of headache.

V&H Shortshots Staggered
These pipes sound amazing! In conjunction with the big sucker I installed, there is an immediate and defined increase in power. The bike seems to now run smoother as well. I am not a mechanic by far but I was able to get them on myself. Took me a lot longer than it should have. But nonetheless, I love the pipes.

Makes my 883 sound like a beast!
Wow, the sound that now comes out of my 883 is better than expected. It turned out a little louder than I expected, but sounds great, looks great, install wasn't complicated at all.
